All about making whisky
Due to its phenolic character, Laphroaig is well-known among amateurs. It’s no surprise then that the distillery owns its own peat bog, capable of guaranteeing the supply of peat for the next 4,000 years. Laphroaig will never lose its character nor, consequently, its fans and its critics – since such a peaty malt cannot be loved unanimously – even its water, drawn from the Loch Kilbride spring, is filtered through peat!

One man is behind this young German retailer - Carsten Ehrlich - a man who is similar to his bottlings, which are straightforward with precise and refined flavours. Various “joint-bottlings” resulted from our meeting with him. The first, Bunnahabhain 1975, which is aged in sherry casks, was chosen by the members of our amateurs club last June. The second is a great favourite of the Maison du Whisky team from the closed distillery of Littlemill, released in a completely exclusive bottling aged in a first-fill sherry butt. The last (but by no means least) is the first edition of Redbreast 15 Year Old, which was launched in 2006.
